Do You Know How To Apply Your Facial Moisturizer?
And you are probably thinking….”is there a correct way to apply” my Facial Moisturizer?
Yes, there is!
It’s not that big of a secret, but it is good to note and its never too late to learn!
Almost every-time I have watched a Skin Care product commercial, specifically face moisturizer commercials, you can see a young (flawless) woman swiping the cream on her face with outward strokes, giving the observer the feeling of freshness and “opening up”, supposedly “sweeping away” all the wrinkles, worries and blemishes on the way!
Really…. psychologically it is the perfect presentation. Think about it! We actually go and do exactly the same strokes thinking, and secretly hoping, that we will get the same “flawless” younger looking skin as the girl in the commercial!
That is where we fall! ….
How to Correctly Apply Skin Care Moisturizer?
So what is the big deal of applying your Facial Moisturizer? Over the years it accumulates to stretching the skin and creating more “wonderful” wrinkles and stretch marks we really don’t want! Simple!
Think about it. Your skin is a supple, elastic membrane that keeps its elasticity with collagen which we naturally produce in our bodies until the age of 16 to 18 (depending on your genes). Once that is gone we need to supplement our skin from outside – in, makes sense right?
Now, if you keep on pulling at your skin, stretching it outward, you will cause it to loosen even more!
Just try to stretch a thick elastic band over and over and over again…you will see, before it “tears”, it starts having stretch marks and wrinkles. That is exactly what happens to your skin!
So when applying your facial moisturizer make sure to do the gestures in my video:
You will see what are the desired stroke gestures to apply your facial moisturizer. You will notice that the strokes around the eyes and on the cheeks are going “inwards” and on the neck “upwards” – these are important to remember!!
That is where all the difference is made!! It does take a little time to get used to, actually, you will find that keeping at this new routine for three weeks (21 days) will get you quite used to it and then you won’t have to even think about it!
Applying correctly your facial moisturizer is the best way to keep those wrinkles at bay and your skin looking fresh and good looking.
Important note: Applying your facial moisturizer to your neckline is just as important as your face, as it is just as exposed to the sun, wind and drying conditions as your face, it needs the same TLC!
